Capital punishment can be supported when the crime committed is extremely horrendous and when the individual under question who has committed a serious crime cannot be rehabilitated. As a rule of thumb rehabilitation should be the first goal, but if that goal cannot be completed the individual is a threat to society and capital punishment can be justified....   [tags: caiptal, punishment, ethical, shooting] 608 words

Is Aging in Place Priceless? - The meaning of home to older adults transcends the financial and physical qualities of the brick and mortar. Gillsjo, Schwartz-Bardot, & Von Post (2011) suggested that “home was experienced as the place the older adult could not imagine living without, but also as the place one might be forced to leave” (p. 2). Notwithstanding an American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) survey (2010) which showed that the “majority of older adults polled preferred to age in place” (p. 1), the dilemma for many seniors is how to do so when faced with deteriorating housing conditions and “insufficient resources in retirement” (Neil & Neil, 2009, p....   [tags: Real Estate ]

Juvenile Justice System: Juveniles Should Be Treated the Same as an Adult Criminal - ... There are many reasons against why offenders of a crime that are under eighteen should not be treated the same as an offender of a crime that is 18 or older. One of these reasons being that the brain of a person that is under the age of 18 is not fully developed, compared to an adults brain. Studies show that the brain is not done maturing when you are under 18 and the ages 10-20 are considered a period of change in one’s life, thus ones judgment and reasoning is not fully developed.
